I've got a few friends who do this, drives me bonkers it's laziness with them they're great lassies but i try not to read too many of their statuseseses wink

My spelling is alright most of the time but my grammar is terrible. Plus my fat pregnant fingers do typos on my phone aaaall the time it's very annoying.

My mum is dyslexic and she only muddles certain letters rather than full sentences of text speak/lazy typing.

OP, have you checked yourself out for fleas if you're getting itchy?

Pedants Corner is >>>>>

It is there for a bloody good reason. Please use it to avoid upsetting people.

The mistake that does my head in at the moment is "musn't of", "could of", "should of" and others like it...

THE WORD YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IS "HAVE". HAVEHAVEHAVE!!!! angry

I don't believe it is dyslexia either. The girl I quoted writes normally for a living!

The people I know with dyslexia don't routinely spell words incorrectly on facebook anyway. You wouldn't even know they had it. My sister has it and you can only tell by her handwriting.

Haha! It's one of my pet hates on FB. But not everyone is great with spellings.

I love finding typos and really get into a rant about incorrect spelling. Latest one I had to comment on was in the local rag "According to reports in the national media toady Chancellor George Osborne will announce plans." I hope they meant today. I despair at some of the spelling on Facebook too. One friend posts "drinking a loverly larger." hmm I totally agree Magrat should of, etc pisses me off too.

Not the end of the world really is it though.

One of my sweetest friends on fb spells things wrong quite often.

I can ignore it because what she writes is really funny and she makes me giggle.

no it's not the end of the world everlong but we're allowed to post about stuff that isn't the end of the world.

life doesn't always have to be serious.

however, i do agree with ChippinIn - pedants' corner is the place for this.
(i can't believe i didn't actually notice it wasn't there!)

cba with caps as dd asleep and have only one hand free.

But taking the piss out of someone's spelling isn't exactly nice is it?

no, but this is aibu.
so...

Indeed it is. So my right not to agree with you wink
